SEAN SCULLY: SET IN STONE
Scully's Wall of Light paintings stem from the artist's memory of light and shadow playing on ancient Mayan ruins. This monumental sculpture continues his interest in light. Over 1000 tones of granite from Dimpomar Quarry, Portugal was cut and constructed into a tight cuboid composition that echoes the striped format of his paintings. However, unlike his paintings, Scully has the accepted "accidents" of the natural granite to create a rich variety of textures. In his own words, he has "forced all the space out of it. Everything is made as densely as possible.
